Nadine Dorries says that the BBC Licence Fee agreement will be the last. Have a care before destroying what BBC World and Local Radio does so well. Are we serious about Global Britain?

BBC News is reaching its largest ever global audience. On average, that’s 456 million people from around the world every week 2020-21 – an increase of 18 million people, compared to 2019-20. That’s a record audience for BBC News International Services.

As 75 per cent of funding for the BBC World Service comes from the Licence Fee, any freeze by the government will have a huge and damaging impact on quality and reach. Another international own goal from a government not serious about Global Britain

Lord David Alton

For 18 years David Alton was a Member of the House of Commons and today he is an Independent Crossbench Life Peer in the UK House of Lords.
